The last time Georgianna Grove canoed Wisconsin's Bone River she was four, her mother was murdered, and her father confessed to the crime. Sixty-six years later, haunted by the 1941 trip that left her parentless, Georgie heads back to the river—children and grands in tow—to determine what really happened that deadly night. A compellingly atmospheric family drama.

In the short novel, More News Tomorrow by Susan Richards Shreve, we learn about Georgie, a seventy year old woman whose father, William, admitted to killing his wife and died in prison; this all happened when Georgie was four years old. On her birthday she hears, by letter, from Roosevelt, the eleven year old boy who was on the boat at the time and knew her father. The story continues with Georgie's children and grandchildren, and especially Thomas, her favorite grandson. This story involves a boys camp in Wisconsin where Roosevelt now keeps up and lives. It's a story of a matriarch who brings her entire family along on a mission to find the truth. I so enjoyed the sweet ending.

Truly lovely story about the things you THINK may matter, don't. I loved the characters and the setting. It is a gem of a book.

Georgianna Grove is celebrating her seventieth birthday re-examining the death of her mother sixty-six years earlier. Georgie barely remembers what happened, she just knows her father claimed responsibility and was immediately locked away for the crime. Now, she has received a letter that propels her back to Missing Lake Wisconsin and an ill advised canoe trip to Missing Lake to try to remember what really happened that long ago night. I really enjoyed this book, it’s a solid read about memory and a cover up, I just wish it had been a little longer. The ending felt a bit rushed
